Why: Come celebrate Denver’s Uptown Neighborhood with an ode to great beer, food and music. Join the fun and watch as Denver’s 10 top craft breweries face-off in the Second Annual Brewer’s Olympics. The brewers’ excellence in beer-making will not prepare them for the raucous events that make up the Brewer’s Olympics: Look for tricycle races, blind-folded grain stacking relay, moving keg obstacle course, and beer transfer competition (no tools or vessels allowed!), as brewers fight for the gold medal. All proceeds from the event benefit New Era Colorado.
